Bears Mock Offseason Dec 22
Mike Martz leaves and is replaced by Norv Turner.
Jerry Angelo retires and is replaced by Ron Hughes the Steelers head of college scouting.
WR Marques Colston [New Orleans] 4 years 28 million/14 guaranteed
The Bears need a #1 WR with some size and they could potentially draft one, but it is a risk and there are no free agent OTs worth anything. Colston has some injury problems, but he has been healthy for a couple of seasons and is a big time producer.
CB Terrell Thomas [New York] 4 years 22 million/10 guaranteed
The Bears CBs have bright moments and then have terrible moments and they need to become more consistent in the secondary. Thomas is coming off of an ACL early in the season so he comes at a discount and he has the size and tackling ability that the Bears need.
S Tyvon Branch [Oakland] 4 years 16 million/6 guaranteed
Brandon Merriweather has been a nightmare, Major Wright has been injured and Chris Conte has had his bad moments and a veteran needs to be added. Branch is a good zone safety that has a ton of speed and loves to hit.
LB Rocky McIntosh [Washington] 4 years 14 million/5 guaranteed
The Bears need to add youth, speed and depth to the LB core and McIntosh has been miscast in the Redskins 3-4 defense. McIntosh has the speed and coverage ability that the Bears need and will start at SLB and backup at WLB if Briggs continues his contract squabble.
QB Drew Stanton [Detroit] 2 years 3.5 million/1guaranteed
Caleb Hanie is a failure as a backup QB and the Bears need to add someone who can at least give them a shot to win in these situations. Stanton is athletic and can make plays right before he ruins it by doing the Dougy.
